Publisher's Summary

I'm the first Mage born in 200 years. I've turned a city into an island, erected a barrier around an entire country, and awakened a war hero from a 200 year old slumber. Prophecies have marked my coming. Kings and nations have begged for my aid in times of peril. I hold the power to create and destroy nations. My name is Rhebengarthen. To my friends and family, I'm just Garth. The world knows me as the Advent Mage. And despite the rumors that you might have heard about me, this is what really happened.

decent

I kept falling in and out of love for this novel. For hours I'd spend my time on the back of a magical stallion, moving mountains, struggling to find my place in the world... then suddenly I'd be ripped off my stallion and tied to an uncomfortable folding metal chair. Someone would tape my eyelids open and turn on the medieval magical CNN political bargaining bulletin station and while slow drips of water hit me in the forehead, I'd have to listen while ignorant tyrants do what they always do. The stark contrast killed me, I found it hard to want to follow at times but I'm all for moving to the next novel, so it was definitely worth it and well written besides.

A story for a younger audience

What did you like best about Jaunten? What did you like least?

I liked the narration but did found the story very simple with a bland plot. Kids might like it though.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked the horse Night who could talk, but found the constant complaining of the young colt, was overdone. The entire scene of feeding and caring for the baby Night seemed silly The constant references to remember to thank his mother for being a great mom and the on going inner dialog about how hard it was to put up with the brat colt was tiresome. .

Which character – as performed by Mark McClain Wilson – was your favorite?

He did a great job with the taking Nightmare creature.

Could you see Jaunten being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

The plot was so thin, I don't see it as a movie.

Any additional comments?

this story seemed like a poor copy of the great work, of L. E. Modesitt Jr. and his seven book series which I love.
I did like the book King Slayer, by this author, and wished that this book had been a sequel to that story.

Brilliant

Laughed throughout. The thought process shown in awkward situations is brilliant. The political side of the story is serious but also shows humorously how boring meetings can be. The book is easy to listen to.
